~ We left supper on the stove – and went for a walk~

“Even if something is left undone, everyone must take time to sit still and watch the leaves turn.”
–   Elizabeth Lawrence


 

Lately we will have a day of rain then a day of sun…

Such was the case Tuesday it rained all day, cloudy grey skies and buckets of rain fell.  Wednesday sunny and dry and the forecast for Thursday and Friday well, rain again … hence the reason we left supper on the stove on a low simmer….

The sun and a walk in the park was calling our names…

Seriously, sometimes you  just have to carpe diem~ you know??

   ~this is our Overton Park and it is right across the street from where we live.

~there is a lot of fall going on out there

  ~we were ready to walk and to gather

~the light is so beautiful in the early evening

~we saw fungi and we saw ferns

~ we explored close up

~I love the long views~

~fall only lasts a minute here, so I am glad we got out in it

~and our soup was just fine when we came home to it…

Emma made her nature display and all in all it was a very good afternoon!!   These are the moments you have to make time for. They are there for you to hold on to and cherish – if you can let your “supper” go for a bit..  It can be hard to stop the work that must be done, but in the end it can be so worth it!

Enjoy your fall!
